Hello everyone!
I'm Giulia from Italian Base and I finally decided to start working on my Rebel Fleet Trooper.
I already have the helmet and boots, I'll show you some pictures:

Helmet.










Boots.


Since I'm building this costume with my boyfriend (Admiral_Liam) we found some really good links for our vest and pants:

https://www.outinstyle.com/rothco-poly-cotton-twill-solid-bdu-shirts-14854.html (to use as a base for our vests)

https://www.outinstyle.com/rothco-bdu-pants-15698.html (pants)

about the shirt, we are thinking about modifying two light blue shirt, following the standards.

About the belt, I think I'll buy this one from philoprops:
https://www.etsy.com/it/listing/587113027/rebel-octagonal-buckle-replica-for-rebel?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=rebel+fleet+trooper&ref=sr_gallery-1-3&organic_search_click=1

Can't wait to become a trooper! Laughing

hello RogueLeader

Looking over your list, and having been a Trooper judge in the past, the boots look fine (Just be sure to blouse down your pants over the buckle so it does not show Imperial style).
The pants can be a concern. I do not trust the pics in listings from Rothco for good reason. The pants should be a light-ish grey, and for some time Rothco was producing a darker, almost charcoal grey that we could not approve. its really hard to tell from this picture. Honestly , thats the primary reason I never finished my own, in my size, pants are VERY limited. I hope these will work for you. Please post photos fo them inside and outside in sunlight so we can see what color they are.
Looking forward to more progress photos from you.

The color of the grey Propper BDU pants looks correct in the photo but I do not know how they look in person. Photos can be deceiving because different lighting changes the color a lot.



My husband's RFT was approved with these grey Rothco (8810) BDU pants in 2017. They are light grey.

Oh I think they are the same of the ones I posted first!! If you say it could be approvable... I'll go with this! Did your husband make a wip thread too? So I can see them.

I really hope those get approved. It got rough for a while when Rothco went to a smoke grey. There used to be a color out there called Swat grey that was about perfect but that was years ago, and well fashion styles have changed, even for 'tactical' clothing

I actually don't know what do to at this point... Maybe it's better if I find some real pictures of them :/

here's the ref:

http://www.forum.rebellegion.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=80504

The pants you have listed may be approved, its up to the Judge, and I know the struggle because I was a Rebel Trooper Judge for a couple of years.

I do know there are makers who make pants on esty and ebay for RFTs. When I was RAID DCO I was in talks with a young lady in Taiwan that had a fantastic and rather accurate set, she may still be on Ebay.

I took a photo of my husband's grey Rothco BDU pants (on the left) and my self-made RFT pants (on the right) because Photobucket killed our WIPs. His RFT was approved with the Rothco BDU pants and mine was approval with the self-made pants. My pants are made out of light grey cotton twill.

The dark grey Rothco BDU pants that David is talking about are called "charcoal grey" on the Rothco homepage and the light grey ones are called "grey". I bought the same grey Rothco BDU pants four times from the source I posted and it was always the light grey ones.

You are welcome. Here is a photo of my husband in his RFT so that you can see how the grey Rothco BDU pants look with the other items.

Yup yup yup!
I bought a pair of the charcoal grey and they are darker for sure.
Your husband's photo is familiar. I may have been his judge at the time. Hard to say, its been a while.

I have been suggesting this seller to applicants because they sell a "Lt gray" and "Charcoal" and you can see the difference in the pics. They've also had good prices in the past.

https://www.ebay.com/str/AMERICAN-BDU-S?_trksid=p2047675.l2563

If in doubt email with your preference.
